With the government announcing that all social clubs should stop running in late March in order to slow the spread of COVID-19, Coventry Boys & Girls Club were forced to close their doors indefinitely to hundreds of young people in the area that use the popular sessions as a safe space and fun way to stay off the streets.
But, whilst CBGC and its members have been unable to meet in the usual way, a team of staff and volunteers have worked day and night to continue their work, providing fun activities for kids and young adults.
On Facebook and Twitter, the hashtag #CBGCthingstodo provides daily updates for kids and carers searching for fun things to do; from drawing Mickey Mouse to making slime.
Exciting online sessions have offered great content such as Quiz’s and Fitness Classes. A media workshop was also launched on social media, providing scripting and short film challenges.
